We’ve known college students enjoy using protein models as tools for STEM Education and learn equally well from both computer-aided molecular visualization software as they do physical models. Could the same apply to grade-school children?
This is a 3D print of Apaf-1 activating Caspase-9, a key protein involved in apoptosis, or programmed cell death. This model is colored by individual protein chains, with Caspace-9 colored shades of blue and Apaf-1 colored shades of magenta.
This is a 3D print of Neutral Ceramidase colored by the protein’s bFactor, or atomic temperature (blue cool, red hot). Models are available in multiple sizes.
This is a 3D print of Sphingosine Kinase 1, colored by the protein’s bFactor, or atomic temperature (blue cool, red hot). The model is available in multiple sizes.
